Saraki gave the pledge on Wednesday, April 11, 2018, when the Conference of Nigeria Female Parliamentarians paid him a courtesy visit at the National Assembly.

The Senate President while lamenting the poor participation of women in governance in the country urged Nigerian women to vote wisely in 2019.

"Anybody in this country today will agree that from the statistics you have given out here today, it is clear that definitely, we are not doing enough in the inclusion of women in politics and governance,” Saraki said.
